In Egypt, I worked in the Department of Paediatrics, Minia University Hospital from 1990 until 1995; since 2004, we moved to the new Suzanne Mubarak Children's University Hospital, which is the only tertiary hospital in the whole Governorate with 170 paediatric beds. In the polyclinic outpatient department, which provide clinics across different specialities, more than 15,000 children are seen each year in different speciality clinics in the hospital outpatient department. There is an A&E Department provides emergency care for about 50 children daily. In addition, the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) with 16 fully equipped incubators cares for over 400 babies per year who is referred from all over the governorate. A Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) will be established soon for the first time in the governorate and my role will be assisting the director of the unit. In the UK, from April 2000 to 2002, I worked as a research fellow in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) and at the Institute of Child Health, Bristol University.
